Sudden Death of Mrs. Nina Townsend
Our people were greatly shocked and grieved this (Thursday) morning at 10 o'clock. when news of the sudden death of Mrs. Nina Townsend was flashed over the city. At this writing we. glean the following brief particulars. Mrs. Townsend had just taken a bath and was in the act of throwing out the water, from her back gallery, when an apoplectic stroke of the heart ensued, and she fell dead, the body falling just outside of the gallery. Death must have been instantaneous. Her son, Ira, was at home, but asleep, and did not know of his mother's death until a nearby neighbor came over a. short while after, and found the dead body. Tender hands took charge of the body .and prepared same for burial, but at this writing the time of the funeral has not been determined. It is very likely, however, that it will be held tomorrow afternoon. Mrs., Townsend was one of our city’s most prominent and best beloved ladies, and her death is sincerely deplored. A suitable obituary will appear in our next issue. [Interment in Weimar Odd Fellows' Cemetery] Weimar Mercury, June 23, 1916, page 1
